A Proper Burial

life

Let me tell you where Mayor Pete Buttigieg is not today. He is not at the burial ceremony for 2,411 aborted babies. That ceremony is being held in his city, South Bend, IN. But I feel sure he's not planning to attend. His radical pro-choice agenda simply could not stand up to the actual reality of tiny babies with faces, arms, fingers, ears, toes, brains, legs, hearts. Ma...

If You Are Thinking of Leaving a Church . . .

​God is adding to our church family. We are seeing new faces and families every week. We are regularly celebrating new members who covenant with us to make Christ known in the world. Hallelujah! The "word of the year" for CBC isMultiply. We are praying for God to multiply us. For God to use us to multiply disciples. To multiply pastors and teachers and missionaries. To...

Reflect and Refocus

DSC_001.JPEG-1

Well, I slept through yet another New Year. Hit the sack about 11 p.m. TV off. Spent the last hours of 2019 reading the last few chapters of Revelation with my family. Answered questions as best I could regarding all the wild symbolism of that Blessed Book of the Bible. Reminded ourselves of the main thing - Jesus wins! He reigns forever and ever and those who have been s...

The Christian Chicken is . . . Chicken?

Screen-Shot-2019-12-04-at-9.30.16-PM

By now the dust is somewhat settling on Chick-Fil-A's decision to stop donating to the Salvation Army and Fellowship of Christian Athletes. This was, apparently, due to certain corporate leaders' desire to pander more to the PC demographic regarding so-called Gay Marriage. This is no longer Truett Cathy's Chick-Fil-A. But I assure every Christian in America, this "dust" s...

Pastor Appreciation Month is Not Working!

Screen-Shot-2019-10-12-at-8.53.09-AM

Yes, it feels really weird to be writing this blog post. After all, I am a pastor. But I am convinced this post, and others like it, are critically important for churches today. Rather than try and say all I want to say, I think I will simply let well-known pastor, Thabiti Anyabwile, say it for me (DON'T MAKE YOUR PASTOR A STATISTIC). And my conclusion is that for all t...

I Knew a Preacher Once

I knew a Preacher once Who was called of the Lord To stand in a pulpit And open up the Word I knew a Preacher once Who said, "Thus says the Lord." His passion was singular And his allegiance to only One I knew a Preacher once Who studied relentlessly the Book Holy Spirit fire in his eyes When to the Sacred Task he took I knew a Preacher once Who taught h...

Comparison - The Root of Many Sins

freely-68063

Recently, I was standing in the check out line at Walmart on a Sunday right after church (I know, I know.really). But here I was. And in front of me were two ladies practicing great patience and kindness with the cashier who was not really happy to be there. They had clearly just left church too. They were dressed in flowered skirts to their knees and their hair was neat a...

Back to School: Parents Beware!

Screen-Shot-2019-07-26-at-8.55.39-PM

Christians often ask the wrong questions. Instead of asking, "Why doesn't God saveeveryone?" we should ask, "Why does God saveanyone?" Another example, sometimes a Christian parent will ask me my opinion on home schooling or private school or public school. I have made my thoughts on those subjects crystal clear for many years, from the pulpit, in the counseling rooms, a...

Public Schools = Pastor's Nuisance

The problems in the K-12 (not to mention the university system) system are really too numerous to even tackle now for Bible-believing pastors. Planned Parenthood runs the "sex education." GLSEN gets a nod to infiltrate every level of the system, meaning our 1st graders are being routinely exposed to the agenda of those who promote sexual sins and self-rule as normal and ac...

The Dignity of Home-Making

ashley-schulze-765488-unsplash-2

My wife and I have two amazing daughters. Raising them has been a deeper joy and a more difficult challenge than we ever anticipated. It has kept us humble and prayerful, seeking God's grace in Christ. Our oldest daughter (19) has expressed little to no interest in college or even a "career." We have raised both of our daughters to follow God's dream for their lives. If t...
